Welcome to 2nd grade

Welcome to Second Grade where learning is fun!

We have had a terrific start to our school year. The students are getting into their routine and enjoying school. We have just finished Mclass reading assessments and are working on retelling the beginning, middle and end to stories through discussion and writing. We are also working on how characters respond to challenges in stories. So, as your child does their nightly homework those are things you could discuss with them.

In math we are starting story problems. We discuss and visualize what action is happening in the problems and if the operation would be addition or subtraction. Our strategies could include counting back or forward on the number line or adding and subtracting in parts. 

Last month in Social Studies we studied communities and citizenship. This month we have started our Science unit about weather.
